Jack R. Bolton, 94, passed away Thursday, September 27, 2018 at his home in Empire. He was born in Highland Park on July 21, 1924 to Russell and Fern (High) Bolton. After high school, Jack joined the Navy and served during WWII. On May 23, 1946 he married Claire Hodges in Clifton, New Jersey and was married for 54 years. Together they had two sons, John and Daniel.
Private family services will be held at a later date for William Denis Sanborn of Traverse City who died Monday, Sept. 24.
He was 69.
Will was born on June 13, 1949 in Portsmouth, Va. to the late Francis Reo and Jean (Saunders) Sanborn. He married Deborah Toerperon on July 28, 1979 in Solon Township.
Both good news and bad news related to Leelanau County’s 2019 budget was emerging this week with a public budget hearing slated for Tuesday evening at the county Government Center.
The good news is that there’s at least $107,000 in the county’s budget for 2019 with nothing to spend it on.
The search continued yesterday for a Leelanau County native who has been missing since Sept. 24.
Randy Day, 42, is a Garfield Township resident who went missing after leaving for a kayaking trip on west Grand Traverse Bay.
In response to public pressure, organizers of a 2019 Ironman event have changed the route of proposed 56-mile bike course through Leelanau County.
Now, only half of the biking event is expected to occur in Leelanau County.
The daughter of a Benzie woman accused of providing the drug that killed a Suttons Bay man was warned Tuesday about perjuring herself while on the witness stand.
“There seems to be a conflict here,” said District Court Judge Michael Stepka after listening to conflicting testimony provided over nearly two hours by Preston Weaver and Erin Shaunea Grant.

The Leelanau Enterprise is one of the county’s oldest businesses, chronicling the people, places and events of Leelanau County for more than 140 years.
The Leelanau Enterprise, Michigan Newspaper of the Year and an institution in Leelanau County since 1877, has a new owner.
KOREAN WAR veteran John Conder greets his teary-eyed wife, Connie, as he returns from the mid-Michigan Honor Flight. The Leland Township couple will celebrate 62 years of marriage in May. More Honor Flight coverage can be found on page 16.
The body of Suttons Bay native Randy Day was recovered last Wednesday afternoon from West Grand Traverse Bay near Neahtawanta Point.
Further coverage will appear in the Oct. 11 issue of the Enterprise.
The Suttons Bay-Bingham Fire and Rescue Department responds to 700 to 800 calls per year and is the “busiest fire and rescue department in Leelanau County,” according to Rich Bahle, president of board of the Suttons Bay- Bingham Fire and Rescue Authority.
Leelanau’s northernmost township has big plans to help its residents. One of the first steps to build more robust services was to evaluate its fleet of emergency vehicles.
And fire chief Hugh Cook determined one of the ambulances was just too old to be considered reliable.
You won’t hear many complaints from Russell Korson about his job.
Korson, a firefighter for Leland Township Fire and Rescue, would suggest young people consider emergency services as a career.
Legacy is important for Russell Korson and Greg Johnson, which helps explain why they pursued careers in firefighting.

The alarm sounds, and the Glen Lake Fire Department is ready to respond.
The fire department with the largest coverage area in the county has come a long way in the past nine months.
